    DVD 30 should be great especially with DVD-A would be interested in your comparison of CD replay on DVD25 30 and what ever dedicated CD players you have run through your system.

    Do a search and you will find loads of info on the 2200 and the 2900 and the differences between them.
    That will help you decide.

    The NAD C521BEE would be quite significantly outperformed for straight CD playback by the Denon 2900, and probably by the 2200.

    Don't mean to muddy the water, but I've got a 2900 and use it for multi-channel material. For stereo I use an Arcam 92T (picked up for a very reasonable price on e-bay).

    One thing to bear in mind with the 2900 is that unlike the 2800II, it doesn't have the facility to decode HDCD encoded discs.

    Well ieventually went for an Hk dvd30 that i bought off of a guy in the classified section and i have to say i am very impressed with the straight stereo performance through the phono outputs,i have'nt had the chance to test the player to it's full capabilities yet as i am moving house in two weeks and it's all boxed up :(
